The video opens with Padma Khanna beginning the song. She touches Amitabh Bachchan very romantically. He is disinterested and turns back. She continues the song and begins to move with him, dancing at the same time. Amitabh Bachchan sees the man, he had been following, standing on the ground floor.
Some musicians are playing some musical instruments and run across the focus area of the camera. Amitabh Bachchan runs down the staircase. He finds the shadow of a man behind a curtain and he opens it to reveal a man and a woman, not the man he was looking for. The man Amitabh Bachchan came looking for hides in the inner chambers of the casino.
As the song peters out, Amitabh Bachchan gets disinterested in the dance and the dancer and leaves. The video ends there.
Artists: The playback of this song was sung by Asha Bhonsle and the onscreen performances are by Padma Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan and others.
Cultural Influence: This is a typically filmi cabaret. The song is good and the singer has done a good job. The video is watchable.
